Dundurn Staffers Celebrate Ontario and OAC

Posted on July 5 by caitlyn

Continuing on our 50th anniversary theme for the Ontario Arts Council, some of the staff here at Dundurn have shared their favourite Ontario memories, things to do and authors:

Anoja – Intern

Toronto is the best part of Ontario

A retreat into the woods is only an hour away in Ontario...

Watching a bear majestically running across a field is a sweet memory of Ontario
